Oracle Solaris Security Recommended Reading

A few recent security-related items you may not have seen yet:

First off, we have a new paper on achieving compliance with security standards using Oracle Solaris 11:

Oracle Solaris 11 and PCI DSS Compliance

This paper specifically takes a look at how customers can use Oracle Solaris 11's extensive security features to comply with Payment Card Industry (PCI) security practices--as you can imagine, customers who need to deal with this want to make sure it's done right. However, the practices it covers are applicable to most any sort of regulatory standards, including SOX, HIPAA, and whatever else your particular auditors might throw your way. This paper was put together by Oracle Solaris engineering in conjunction with a PCI auditor. If you have any feedback on this, be sure to add a comment below; I'll make sure the right people see it.

Meanwhile, Oracle Solaris security expert Glenn Faden, aka "Trusted Blogger," has come out with several new posts. A couple in particular are based on requests for an explanation of the differences between the security models in Oracle Solaris and other environments such as AppArmor and SELinux.
